June is here, which means we’re ready for sunnier days! To give you lots of inspiration on how you can incorporate making into your summer plans, we’ve rounded up the top 5 summer DIYs you have to try!

 

Cheerful Beach Bags

Personalising your own beach bag is the perfect summer activity! Liven up straw bags with pom poms and tassels or use die-cut shapes as the perfect appliqué embellishment. You can also use negative die-cuts as a stencil for personalising your bag with lettering!

Tropical Flower Garlands

We love creating paper flowers and think an amazing way to incorporate them into your summer makes is to create a tropical flower garland. Summery flower dies, such as our Tropical Lei Bigz (663599), is the perfect design to create your own tropical paradise in your own garden or to create summery interior accessories as pictured below.

Perfect for parties, or just for those relaxing summer days in the garden. Old trays have the potential to be upcycled to be bright and colourful ready for summer!
